Jenni - Hope you had good luck with the IV. I've never had one, but will need one with this birth. I'm nervous too - when they draw my blood it takes several times, unless they send me to the pros at LabCorp or LabOne. I had blood drawn on Wednesday and it took 5 pokes.
Lesley - you didn't ask me, but your reaction seems normal. I mean, heck, she's your baby, your sunshine, and you want her to be the healthiest, strongest, smartest, sweetest, best baby. It's got to be stressful for both of you to start off with such challenges.
Jenny & Joy - Good Luck!!!
My body is acting up, too. I don't know if it's just getting ready or if my time is approaching. I've had new backaches since last night, couldn't sleep well or to my regular time, have some intestinal distress, and what I think are BH. I'm keeping an eye on my watch, but I didn't think I could go this early.
I'd really like to get one more week of work in. (Sick, isn't it?) I've got a big website planning meeting, a leadership class, articles due, and just a little more training to do before I'll feel 'ready.' If stuff gets screwed up while I'm gone, I don't want to hear that I could have prepared people earlier.
On the other hand, DH tells me about 4 times a day that he is ready to be a daddy, and I have to agree with him.
